(KMOV) – Deputies in Franklin County are warning residents after two Timber Wolves escaped captivity in Robertsville area.
Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke says the wolves escaped from a caged area at a residence in the 800 block of Moonlight Trail, south of Robertsville.
Witnesses reported seeing the wolves in the Finney Road area Sunday night. The two adult animals are suspected to be between 100 and 150 pounds.
The owner of the wolves says while they are normally not aggressive, they may be defensive and could be unpredictable when hungry.
